Out the the '80's

Goodbye Hair-bands, and hello Bell Bottoms.

Fashion horrors aside, I'm quite happy to see the number.... 178! 178! 178! (.6)

Still, that makes me down by my second 10%, so I've made my end of summer goal and it's only the beginning of July.

My next 10% goal - originally set for the end of the year - is to hit 161...

A slightly closer goal is to lose another 10 pounds and get out of the BMI category known as Obese and get to merely Overweight.

I'm going to set getting down to Overweight as my goal for the end of summer (end of summer being September 21st, not August 30th, whatever the school children might believe) with hitting my 3rd 10% by Thanksgiving.

(I've just hit the size 14s, even though I haven't bought any yet. I tried some on last week when I went out to do the laundry, I walked over to the K-mart. I'm not comfortable in them yet, they were ABITSNUG, but I can get them on and zipped.)

My goal past Thanksgiving is simply to maintain until the end of the year. Losing any weight during the holidays is complete and total gravy, and I'll be happy if I don't gain back more than 10 pounds.

So, that's my week. I missed most of the meeting, as Darcy was being a complete and total pill last night and we had to go outside and walk around the block a few times (which is quite a ways... have you ever walked behind a strip mall before? It's bulkier than you might think.)

Each new achievement helps to fuel new successes, and obviously, you are on a ROLL, girl! Congratulations on the 170's and getting into those 14's. Honestly, we should start some kind of clothes closet with all the stuff we've (quickly) outgrown!!
